Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard

Why This Must Be Read: Hi there - this month I'm reccing Historical AUs and we're starting way back in medieval times and working our way forward to the 20th century. In this lovely fic Rodney's a monk and John's a disgraced knight exiled to his monastery. I like how canon's translated into this totally different context and how they're still very much themselves. The details are great as well - in trying to figure out roughly when the story might be set I looked up the Archimedes text mentioned toward the end, and it sounds absolutely like the sort of revolutionary thinking that would have excited Rodney.

"Where Eagles Dare... We Will Be Playing Poker a Hundred Miles in the Opposite Direction" by dvs

The author was/is also known as Danvers, SVendra, dvswraatins, D

Rating: Teen and up audiences

Show: SGA/SG-1

Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex, Elizabeth Weir, Evan Lorne, Cameron Mitchell, Sam Carter, Vala Mal Doran, Teal'c, Daniel Jackson
Pairings: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay

Why This Must Be Read:

Team-fic with a twist. A funny story, (sometimes bordering on crack) and at times a surprisingly accurate insight into how people generally tick.

Closing the Loop by Esteefee (explicit)

Show: Stargate Atlantis

Rec Category: John/Rodney
Characters: John, Rodney, Nancy
Categories: Mature
Warnings: Porn!
Author on LJ: esteefee
Link: Closing the Loop

Why This Must Be Read: The arrival of John’s ex-wife on Atlantis helps precipitate John and Rodney’s relationship. The boys are funny and sweet, and the first-time sex is hot and perfect. I love how esteefee writes Rodney, making him gruff and snarky and sweet all at once. This is good stuff!

How the Grinch Saved Christmas by Technophobe (PG-13)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Rodney McKay
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Aiden Ford, Teyla Emmagen, Elizabeth Weir, other Atlantis members
Categories: Gen, Humour
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author's Website: on FF.net
Link: How the Grinch Saved Christmas

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, so admittedly this is a little out of season, but it's such a thoroughly enjoyable story that, really, who cares?

The Atlantis expedition's first Christmas is approaching and with everyone becoming a little glum about spending the holidays so far away from home, Elizabeth decides to just start the festivities in November to the delight of everyone. Well, almost everyone. This story is sweet and funny and full of misunderstandings as the base reacts to Rodney's apparent hatred for the holidays by calling him the Atlantis Grinch. Oh, and for his final act, Rodney juggles.

The Fundamental Things by Taste_is_Sweet (teen & up)

Thought I posted this to the community this morning, but it went up on my own page instead. Whoops!

Show: Stargate Atlantis

Rec Category: John/Rodney
Characters: John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon, Elizabeth, Radek, Carson, Lorne
Categories: Teen and Up
Warnings: Amnesia, big time h/c
Author on LJ: taste_is_sweet
Link: The Fundamental Things

Why This Must Be Read: The depth of feeling between John and Rodney is the whole story here. Kept prisoner on a derelict ship, having lost the memory of everything they were and everything they know - even simple words at times - they still hold on to each other. It’s beautiful and heart-breaking, and everything perfect that you’d expect from one of Taste’s fics.

Plumber's Helper by Sholio (PG-13)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Rodney McKay
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Elizabeth Weir, Radek Zelenka, Carson Beckett
Pairings: Rodney/John friendship
Categories: Gen
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: sholio
Author's Website: City on the Ocean's Edge
Link: on ff.net or at City on the Ocean's Edge

Why This Must Be Read: According to the author's notes, this story came about after speculation about what ten thousand year old plumbing would be like. Which is actually a really good question. How did the search for Ancient bathrooms go? This story is funny and creative with Rodney playing reluctant plumber during the first few days of the expedition.

Why This Must Be Read:
Rodney gets blindsided by John during team movie night, in the best way possible. But of course his insecurities come in to play, John’s as well, and the misunderstanding almost does them in. It’s sweet, and sexy, and full of fun!

Unrealized Reality, by antonomasia (PG)

Show: SG-1

Rec Category: Teal'c
Characters: Teal'c, Bra'tac, team
Categories: gen, drama, time travel, episode related, crossover, AU, Teal'c/Drey'auc
Warnings: technical crossover with Farscape
Author on LJ: antonomasia09
Author's Website: antonomasia at AO3
Link: Unrealized Reality

Why This Must Be Read: The events of 48 Hours may have been instantaneous to Teal'c, but who knows what happens in a wormhole? In this fascinating crossover with Farscape, Teal'c spends those two days struggling to find the path to his own reality... and exploring some fascinating AUs at the same time. The whole thing is excellent reading, but the last two paragraphs are my favorite!

Reccer's note: Speaking as someone who only knows that Cam and Vala's actors had roles on Farscape, you can be safely assured that you can read this without any familiary with the fandom.

Categories: gen, Jack and Sam friendship, Sam and Daniel friendship, angst, drama, character study
Warnings: adult themes
Author on LJ: isawet

Link: the cold hard equation

Why This Must Be Read: I love best the episodes when SG-1 has to grapple with difficult, shades-of-grey situations. In this heartbreaking story, Sam has to deal with a problem with an impossible solution which she nonetheless needs to make.

I love Sam's courage here, Jack's unremitting strength, Daniel's gentle support, the general competence of just about everyone, and the inevitable choice. Painfully, powerfully good.

Rec Category: John/Rodney
Categories: Mature, Slash
Warnings: References to Trinity, Aurora/The Hive, Epiphany, Grace Under Pressure
Author on LJ: stillane
Link: Linguistics

Why This Must Be Read: This is such a sweet, beautiful fic. Five months into a physical relationship with John, Rodney is wondering if they’re on the same page and is especially preoccupied with the three little words he wants so badly to say and is so certain John isn’t able to. The progression of their relationship is slow, and marked by things like Arcturus, but eventually they get where they need to be.

Why This Must Be Read: Bittersweet and beautifully done, Cyren takes us through Father's Day from differing perspectives: two members of SG-1 who lost their parents, and two members of SG-1 who miss their sons. Coping methods and characterization are all perfect. Any fic that leaves you feeling thoughtful is a good one!

Categories: gen, drama, team, angst, apocafic, AU
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: tielan
Author's Website: tielan at AO3
Link: Storm Front

Why This Must Be Read: Out of necessity, this is a mystery crossover. What makes it so gripping is the characterization: Jack as the competent, intelligent general of the SGC, his rapport and trust in his people (especially Sam), the reactions of the various characters, and the realistic fusion of SG-1 with a certain movie series that you needn't have actually watched (I haven't, personally) in order to recognize. Great apocafic, and a really good read.

The Te of John, by Speranza (explicit)

Show: Stargate Atlantis

Rec Category: John/Rodney
Characters: John, Rodney, Carson
Categories: Explicit slash
Warnings: explicit sexy fun times
Link: The Te of John

Why This Must Be Read: After a bad experience offworld Rodney tries to ascend, for real this time, using the same methods he employed in the ep The Tao of Rodney. And John does everything he can to keep that from happening without coming out and saying the actual words. Emotionally constipated boys for the win! Plus, banter and John’s unique expectations of how Rodney should be acting make this at turns very funny and almost heartbreaking.
